In Seasons, children will learn about the mighty European oak tree and its many inhabitants as well as those resilient enough to endure the frigid temps of the Arctic. They’ll explore the vast, mountainous plains of Alaska and the creatures that swim through its flowing rivers and take refuge in dens and trees. They’ll visit the Yellow Dragon Valley in China where some of the rarest species roam and then discover the breathtaking grasslands of the Kenyan Maasai Mara where blue wildebeests, olive baboons, and Vlei ink flowers live. The seasonal changes that affect each of these regions is highlighted.
This is a creatively written and illustrated work of non-fiction that’ll appeal to youth ages six to ten. It’s an ideal resource for elementary school science teachers and has ample material for student projects about wildlife, habitats, and seasonal change. The illustrations are filled with color and defined by detail and precision. Additional ones are inserted as layered flaps in between pages – a feature that readers will love. They help organize the material and have an aesthetic quality to them. An array of fascinating facts embedded within the text will keep youngsters interested and engaged for hours.
